La Notte Italiana – an Italian-Austrian double feature of the companies of
Elio Gervasi & Roberto Zappalà

03 / 04 / 05 December 2014
19:30, Odeon

With "La Notte Italiana" the dance companies Tanz Company Gervasi (IT) and compagnia zappalà danza (IT) launch an exchange project between Italy and Austria which features two world premieres in December 2014 in the Odeon in Vienna.

Tanz Company Gervasi (AT)
the white horn
World premiere

The white horn is the presentation of a work in progress that seems to be rather unusual for choreographer Elio Gervasi. Six female dancers explore that particular human state that is floating somewhere in between the space of an inside and an outside self where, eventually, emotions are being created. Existential moments and encounters are the focal point of this choreography: separation, distance, getting lost or being found again: all this remains a dream, blurry and not palpable.

compagnia zappalà danza (IT)
Transiti Humanitatis#2 -  ORATORIO PER EVA
World premiere

A dancer, a violin and a baroque vocal ensemble: these are the ingredients for the second part of the night. The performance revolves around Eve, the first woman – biblically as well as emblematically speaking – and yet she is also a dancer and a woman in the now. The story tells us about a birth, which equally represents sorrow and relief, pain and conscience as well as beauty and growth.

An edgy but also delicate, smooth or impetuous way of dancing unfolds the confusion and fears, doubts and certainties of a symbolical and a real Eve. She takes shape in the dancer and, at the same time, in every woman, in every one of us.

A collaboration of Teatro Garibaldi / Unione dei Teatri d'Europa (Palermo), Teatro Comunale di Ferrara, ImPulsTanz Wien.
